Using Technology in the Early Childhood Classroom

Using Technology in the Early Childhood Classroom | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Children need real-life experiences with real people to truly benefit from available technologies. Technologies should be used to enhance curriculum and experiences for children. Children have to have an integrated and well-balanced set of experiences to help them grow into capable adults that can handle social-emotional interactions as well as develop their intellectual abilities.

Is technology dangerous?

Is technology dangerous? | education k-12 | Scoop.it

So why do some of my lecturer’s discourage me from using “technology”? I can’t say for sure, but I would guess that, as is so often the case, they fear it because they do not understand it. And that is fine. Long gone are the days where the teacher is the beacon of all knowledge. But if you don’t understand something, you need to be open to learning about it, and if you can’t manage that then you should probably stop trying to train pre-service teachers.

Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation.

"For some reason, educational games are getting an increasingly bad rap.

 

Educators are questioning their merits on social media. Studies are popping up saying they don’t help. Psychologists are cautioning parents about impact on attention span.

 

Part of this could be over-inflated expectations. If we expect a game to teach children anything other than what that games simulates, we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment."

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | education k-12 | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Once Upon a Device: 20 Reading Activities & Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

Once Upon a Device: 20 Reading Activities & Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | education k-12 | Scoop.it

"Epiphany is one of my favorite words. I remember discovering the word in high school and thinking that finally I had the right word to describe the “aha” moments I would get after reading a good book. I want my learners to have several epiphanies throughout their learning journeys. I want them to make connections to what they read and personalize the content.

 

Often, teachers have to teach books that are much older than the kids, written in archaic language, and that take place in countries and imaginary worlds our learners have no experience with. I think activities have to help learners visualize and experience this world to get a better understanding of the mindset of the characters. Various free apps provide multimedia rich reading experiences and story creation. Additionally, many of these apps inspire creativity, support play, and engage learners of all ages. I decided to create my first Piktochart of some of these lesson ideas I am sharing in a webinar on Saturday about Engaging Readers with iPads. Click on the Apple to go to a free IOS app that will help you accomplish the activity. Click on the blue arrow to see Android apps that should accomplish the task."

10 Reasons Why We Need Research Literacy, Not Scare Columns | education k-12 | Scoop.it

The children and media research community has been buzzing with frustration at the viral circulation of Cris Rowan's Huffington Post column, "10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12." The piece pretty well defines "hack-ademic" writing, in which an author throws lots of learned-sounding terms and citations at a lay reader, while obscuring misinterpretations and fuzzy logic. Here are 10 reasons why Rowan's column is flawed.

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | education k-12 | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | education k-12 | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.

Whether you're the parent of a child with a reading disability or an educator that works with learning disabled students on a daily basis, you're undoubtedly always looking for new tools to help these bright young kids meet their potential and work through their disability. While there are numerous technologies out there that can help, perhaps one of the richest is the iPad, which offers dozens of applications designed to meet the needs of learning disabled kids and beginning readers alike. Here, we highlight just a few of the amazing apps out there that can help students with a reading disability improve their skills not only in reading, writing, and spelling, but also get a boost in confidence and learn to see school as a fun, engaging activity, not a struggle

Many thanks to our colleague John Evans for this post! Perhaps the most compelling thing about these apps is that they reduce the burden of phonological processing which research demonstrates is at the root of most print challenges causing lack of fluency, fatigue and compromised comprehension. Even those with no print challenges will enjoy the ease of 'immersion reading'--eye reading an  e book and listening ( ear reading ) simultaneously. I will add one app not included in the 40:  Voice dream  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGNYsGVAL4g 

is the best I have used but it costs about $10. Well worth it to me. Voice Dream links seamlessly with dropbox, Google drive, Guttenberg etc, has speed controls and choices of voices.  I will even venture an observation that having these technologies available to dyslexic children and adults makes this era of mobile devices the best time in history  to have dyslexia since the before the invention of the printing press!  -Lou
